Description:

Celebrating Christmas in Jamaica


Hook:

Can you hear the far-off jingle of the Fisherman’s harbor bell?

Do you see the tiny sparkle of the Crystal of sand, on the shell?


Style:

Island-Rock

 

Full Lyric:

Verse 1

Sails half-billowed in the lazy breeze,

Sunlight dappling on the swell,

The scent of salt, Christmas Day,

on Montego Bay we know so well.


Chorus

Can you hear the far-off jingle of the Fisherman’s harbor bell?

Do you see the tiny sparkle of the Crystal of sand, on the shell?


Verse 2

Nobody wears a fake white beard

Beside the Blue Mahoe Tree,

No stocking is hung, let alone worn

When the temperature is 83,

But we can taste the eggnog thick and smooth drinking our Red Stripe beer.

Smell the chestnuts on the open fire, 

Though we’ve only coconuts here.


Chorus

Can you hear the far-off jingle of the Fisherman’s harbor bell?

Do you see the tiny sparkle of the Crystal of sand, on the shell?




Interlude

Verse 3

Remember those guys from these islands,

Who raced on that sled thing?

I hope that they went fast enough

To hear the angels sing.


Chorus

Can you hear the far-off jingle of the Fisherman’s harbor bell?

Do you see the tiny sparkle of the Crystal of sand, on the shell?
